Wetlands Protection - Program Development Grants: The purpose and special emphasis of this grant program is to provide funding for projects which develop: 1) comprehensive wetland monitoring programs using environmental indicators, assess biological health, estimate wetland losses, gains, and functions; 2) ecologically effective compensatory mitigation for unavoidable impacts; 3) protection for isolated wetlands and other sensitive aquatic resources; and 4) tribal wetland conservation plans. Development of Habitat Conservation Plans, projects set forth by other federal agencies, or long-term planning projects not connected to near-term implementation are a low priority.
